Some bands like to keep things simple and have one vocalist. Some prefer to spice things up a little bit and have two. And then some like to do amazing things with three, sometimes even four, vocalists. The one qualification for this list is that the band has three or more LEAD vocalists. Not just the kind you mic and can barely hear live, but ones that contribute somewhat to the vocals on most of their respective bands' songs. Also, this list is arranged by not only how good the bands are, but how well they make use of each vocalist.
1 Home Free
Home Free is an American a cappella group of five vocalists, Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist, Adam Rupp, Tim Foust, and Adam Chance.
These guys are so amazing. They may be an A Capella group, but by the full sounds that come out of these guys, you would never know there were no instruments involved. Each guy in the group is an amazing singer in their own right, but together...they are a nothing short of perfection! They are also very funny, and very quick witted. Going to one of their concerts is something you won't forget any time soon, and that's for sure. They do covers of other artists, but they also write their own music, too. And last but not least, I love the fact that every night they always enteract with their audience, whether is joking around, or including them in a sing-along song.
These guys are the most amazing group ever. I love lots of groups, but hands down these 5 guys top my chart. Hearing them you'd never know they were acapella. Beautiful harmonies, fun, upbeat, and able to make great tunes even better. Each individual is amazing in their own right and their concerts are the best entertainment of all. They interact with the crowd while performing precision dance steps, stand up comedy, and gorgeous music. A Home Free Concert is more fun than any other concert I've been to.
Great Guys! Great Music! Great Comedy! Dynamite Beat Boxing! Sexy Dance Moves! Funny Story Telling! Great Audience Interaction! Genuine Friendship! Great Individual Talents! Compassionate Group! Family oriented shows! Domestic and International Presence! Loyal Home Fry Fans! Easy on the Eyes! = HOME FREE! What more could you ask for?
Each member of Home Free are unbelievable skilled. Together they are an amazing firework of talent. Phenomenal musicians. Listening to them without seeing them makes it hard to comprehend that they're making music without instruments but they are! They always come up with something new and they are getting better and better.
